The project involves replacing the Illinois 111 bridge over I-64 and improving the interchange between the two highways. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the progress and issues concerning this project and obtain public input. Due to the project’s location at the former sites of the Douglas-Lawnridge and St. Clair County cemeteries, IDOT welcomes input from the community, families and loved ones of those interred in these cemeteries.
Handouts and display boards regarding the proposed improvement will be available for review, as will information regarding engineering, land acquisition, environmental processes and public involvement. Representatives from IDOT and the project consultants will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. There will be no formal presentation.
Comment forms will be provided at the meeting and available on the project website at https://idot.illinois.gov/projects/I-64-under-IL-111. The public can mail comments directly to 1102 Eastport Plaza Drive, Collinsville, Ill., 62234. Comments may also be submitted via email to Matthew.Meyer@illinois.gov on or before Aug. 23.
